ValentusTRIPLE DIAMOND, Executive of the Year 2018, Karen Ford; Charlottesville Virginia.
I was introduced to this incredible industry 28 years ago. As a single mother I found myself working two jobs and never being home with my son. One day I overheard a conversation in a restaurant with a gentleman talking to a lady about working from home and earning above average income. I was having my lunch break from my day job and I continued to listen.
When I came home I called 1-800 411 (which we had back in the day), to find a number for the company I heard him talking about. They told me there wasn’t a one 800 number for the company but there was a 1-800 number for an independent distributor, I said I’ll take that. I reached out to that person and she put me on a three-way connect with the owner of the company. I joined that company and followed that owner for almost 14 years.
Working with that particular company and still working two jobs I found that I could not balance my time. A gentleman who lead that company with leadership development, John Solleder, reached out to me and said he saw something in me and he knew if I would let him coach me I could soar in the industry. I went All-In, he coached me from earning $1500 a month to $15,000 a month in 120 days.
I put those skills to work and have never looked back. When that owner passed away the company changed, and I started looking for a new platform that I felt was a level playing field for everybody. I tried three other companies but quickly saw all the elements were not in place and I stepped away.
Then, in April 2016 I found exactly what I was looking for.
A company that was young, but was growing 1000% a year with a very rich compensation structure. They had superior products and were affordable. Everything was easily duplicatable and I said “YES”. We created 17 Diamonds and above on our team our FIRST year. This was unheard of in my previous companies.
Because of the Valentus Opportunity I have now reached my First HUGE Industry Milestone and now become a MILLION DOLLAR Earner since joining this Industry.. I’ve been featured in industry books such as “Moving Up”, studied under Larry Thompson and John Maxwell, but I learn the most from the men and women I get to work with every single Day.
My motto, “You can make money or you can make excuses, but you can’t make both, which will YOU choose”? ...Karen Ford
Karen Ford was recognized as Executive of the Year, 2018.
.. I’ve earned ANOTHER Million in this industry, thanks to Valentus.
